A Mainer has died as 32 new coronavirus cases are reported in Maine, health officials said Saturday.
Saturday’s report brings the total coronavirus cases in Maine to 4,317. Of those, 3,872 have been confirmed positive, while 445 were classified as “probable cases,” according to the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention.
New cases were reported in Androscoggin (4), Cumberland (4), Penobscot (5), York (13), Hancock (1), Kennebec (3), Sagadahoc (1) and Waldo (1) counties state data show.
The death toll now stands at 130. Nearly all deaths have been in Mainers over age 60. The death announced on Saturday was a man in his 70s from Cumberland County.
So far, 408 Mainers have been hospitalized at some point with COVID-19, the illness caused by the coronavirus. Of those, four people are currently hospitalized, with one in critical care and one on a ventilator.
Meanwhile, 20 more people have recovered from the coronavirus, bringing total recoveries to 3,718. That means there are 469 active and “probable” cases in the state, which is up from 458 on Friday.
A majority of the cases — 2,425 — have been in Mainers under age 50, while more cases have been reported in women than men, according to the Maine CDC.
As of Saturday, there had been 230,459 negative test results out of 236,671 overall. Just under 2.3 percent of all tests have come back positive, Maine CDC data show.
The coronavirus has hit hardest in Cumberland County, where 2,158 cases have been reported and where the bulk of virus deaths — 70 — have been concentrated. It is one of four counties — the others are Androscoggin, Penobscot and York, with 590, 212 and 737 cases, respectively — where “community transmission” has been confirmed, according to the Maine CDC.
There are two criteria for establishing community transmission: at least 10 confirmed cases and that at least 25 percent of those are not connected to either known cases or travel. That second condition has not yet been “satisfied” in other counties.
Other cases have been reported in Aroostook (37), Franklin (47), Hancock (45), Kennebec (179), Knox (28), Lincoln (35), Oxford (59), Piscataquis (7), Sagadahoc (59), Somerset (42), Waldo (67) and Washington (15) counties.
As of Saturday morning, the coronavirus has sickened 5,624,866 people in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands and the U.S. Virgin Islands, as well as caused 175,416 deaths, according to Johns Hopkins University of Medicine.
